The Chef is absolutely amazing and as vegetarians... More

Food was really good and very good value for money. My main was only £8.25! I had the chilli, and it was better than I had expected - I would have it again. If I recall, the dearest dish on the menu was priced at £11.25, which was salmon and prawns. The staff were pleasant enough, especially as I had... More

I stayed as a solo visitor. The staff were mainly friendly. The room was a reasonable size, however the one I stayed in on the second floor was in need of updating. I paid extra for a sea view, and it was nice to hear the sea each morning at high tide. There was a good size walk in shower.... More

We planned our day showing two Canadian visitors around our island by deciding to stop here for lunch today, Saturday. We arrived at exactly 2pm and were rudly told they were not open for food ! This is a tourist island , it is tourist season, but they obviously do not welcome them.

I reviewed this restaurant in 2015 & I said that there was room for improvement - & that is still the case unfortunately. The food just scrapped into the average bracket overall, but some dishes were more suited to the poor rating. If you want burger & chips then I'm sure the kitchen can't get that wrong, but some of...

Stayed here last weekend and really enjoyed our visit. Excellent food and great accommodation. Staff and management Sabrina & Gavin were very helpful and very informative on places to see and visit. Would definitely return to this gem.
